I was recently invited to speak at the UK e-Infrastructure Academic User Community Forum in Oxford on the work that we have been doing to make e-Infrastructure accessible to industry - both as HPC Midlands and through my role on the Technology Strategy Board's e-Infrastructure SIG. Due to an autocorrect whim, the invite from Oxford e-Research Centre Director David de Roure turned into an 'incite', which in the circumstances seems quite appropriate. I hope the resulting call to arms offers some insight into where we as a community perhaps need to step up a gear or two. All of this, and Bee-Bots too!

We're doing a survey of UK Higher Education institutions' approaches to Research Data Management.  We've had a good response to this so far, but there's always room for more - hence this post to further raise awareness.  This work is part of Loughborough University's Research Data Management project, which I've blogged about previously:

Describing the Elephant

Suddenly, Everything has Changed.

If you are leading on RDM or Open Data more generally for your institution, please take a moment to fill out our RDM questionnaire.  We'll share a suitably anonymized version of the results in due course.
